Today a girl child is several times more likely to be eliminated before birth in India than die of various causes in the first year of her existence.
killing a girl before birth and after birth is not the only issues with a girl child in India. Actually at every stage of life she is discriminated and neglected for basic nutrition, education and living standard. When she is in the womb, she is eliminated before she can enter the world. If by chance she takes birth then at the time of birth this society pull her back and wrung her neck and after killing her she is thrown into a trash can. If she gets lucky to survive from all this inhumanity, then her childhood is not more than a punishment with her brother getting all the attention with new shoes, dresses and books to learn while she is gifted a broom, a wiper and lots of tears. In her teenage, she misses nutritious food to eat and gets only the left over crumbs.And by chance if she go for studies, during the age when she should be in college she is hurriedly "married off" leading to conditions where she remains ever dependant on others for her survival. She does not have either social or economic independence. Further her illiteracy, lack of education results in unwanted and early pregnancies, high fertility rate. This further effects the overall condition of females in the country. Again if this female gives birth to a girl child, the whole journey cycle of murder and discrimination begins all over again.
Although sex determination and sex selection is a criminal offence in India, it changes nothing. Private clinics with ultrasound machines and other latest technologies are doing brisk business. Everywhere, people are paying to know the sex of an unborn child and paying more to abort the female child. The technology has even reached remote areas of the country through facilities like mobile clinics. People are getting sex determination done even for the first child.
"Equality is a fundamental right," but where is the gender equality when one million girl are killed every year before birth itself. Therefore we need to understand the fact that our situation is really alarming and it is the high time to do something effective to stop this.
